Professional Artist Award
Annually the Members of Cavan County Council with the support of the Arts Council support professional artists living and working in County Cavan. This funding is available under the Professional Artist Awards.
Professional artists from all disciplines are welcome to apply to this scheme. Applicants must be originally from County Cavan, reside in the County or artists whose proposed work has a significant Cavan element. The term ‘Professional Artist’ assumes that you have a substantive body of work created and that you are recognised as such by your peers in the making or developing the Arts.
The Professional Artists Awards are designed to assist artists in relation to any of the following three categories:
– Professional Development - (e.g. further training, mentoring, artist and interdisciplinary collaboration, attendance at workshops including digital). Up to €2,500.
– New Artworks - (e.g. research and development, residency assistance*, production costs, materials assistance, etc.). Up to €2,000.
– Audience Initiatives - (e.g. audience research, digital upskilling, performance and recording development assistance, publication and exhibition assistance, arts practice development in conjunction with arts or community groups). Up to €1,500.
